There are many fake figures on the market (bootlegs)
With more or less quality, there are sometimes sold as genuine (ripof)
What are the differences between genuine and bootleg dragon ball figures?
The first thing to look for is the logo of the brand.
Banpresto, Bandai etc… NO LOGO = FAKE !
Also look for copyrights ex: BANDAI made in japan or china + year.
The second thing to look for is the Toei sticker.
EVERY official products have either Toei sticker or Big sticker of your local importer with texts in different langages + copyrights.
The figure sould have a mate paint not shinny.
The detail must be fine with no paint defects.
Every pieces must fit perfectly into each others.
No spaces between pieces.
